Thank you for allowing me to help you with this concern today and am sorry to hear that this is happening. I will have to ask you a few questions so that I can get a better understanding as to what may be going on with your Rx330.Have you made any repair attempts to this radio unit yet or tried disconnecting the battery for 30 min?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No we have made no attempts to to repair. Have not tried to disconnect the battery - are you referring to the main battery?
Expert:  Genchi Genbutsu replied 1 year ago.
Yes, the main battery. Try disconnecting it for 30 minutes and then reconnecting it. That may "reboot" the system. The main problem is that ERROR Code 3 means that the system has a mechanical function problem. That means something is physically wrong with the CD player. Is this the original player in this vehicle?
Expert:  Genchi Genbutsu replied 1 year ago.
Were you able to give this a try?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No . I was not comfortable disconnecthing the battery.
Expert:  Genchi Genbutsu replied 1 year ago.
That's ok. Please when you get a chance, please have someone who does feel comfortable give this a try. If this doesn't work, and because we are dealing with a mechanical issue, a new/used radio unit will be needed.Does this make sense?
